This property is situated in Appledore, a picture-postcard village situated on the confluence of the rivers Taw and Torridge. The village’s cobbled streets are wonderful to wander, perhaps stopping in at one of the pubs, tearooms, or restaurants. In the warmer months, a boat from the town’s quay runs across the River Torridge to the neighbouring village of Instow, with its beach, sand dunes, and yacht club. Just three miles from the property, the wide beach at Westward Ho! is a popular destination for families and even has a surf school should visitors want to have a go at surfing, or stand-up paddle boarding.
